The Arkansas Senate passed SB 298, a bill banning enforcement of Federal gun control laws by a vote of 28-7. It was sent to the State House Judiciary Committee on March 31, 2021.

The Arkansas Senate: “SB 298 To Be Known as the Arkansas Sovereignty Act of 2021; Concerning The Right To Bear Arms In The State Of Arkansas; And Concerning Other Constitutional Rights.”

All acts, law, orders, rules, and regulations of the United States Government, whether past, present, or future, that infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Arkansas Constitution, Article 2, Section 5, are invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.

The act also has other features:

It would prohibit any law enforcement agencies in the state from cooperating with federal authorities to enforce federal gun law, executive order or federal agency directive that conflicts with protections for gun rights in the Arkansas Constitution or any other state law. Police in the state would be subject to criminal penalties and fines for working with federal authorities in violation of the proposed state law.

The legslation may prohibit enforcement of the National Firearms Act, and the Gun Control Act of 1968, and any other federal legislation that should come down the pike. Democrats are always claiming that they’re “not going to take away anyone’s guns.” That is a lie. Thanks to Beto O’Rourke who specifially told Americans that “hell, yes, we’re going to take your guns” and Joe Biden’s open confiscation plans, we do know what they are up to.

House Democrats in Washington DC have specifically pushed Biden to do an Executive Order on guns, and in particular they want “concealable assault weapons.” Read that, AR pistols. They wrote to ask him to have them classified under the National Firearms Act and heavily regulated because the Boulder shooter, Ahmad Alissa, used an AR-pistol. He passed a background check even though he was known to the FBI.

You would have to be totally blind to death to not see that our nation is as divided right now as it ever has been and we have elected officials in office in Washington, D.C., who actually don’t even care what the Constitution says and decided that they are going to do it their way no matter what happens and have no respect for the 10th Amendment.

It appears that most Democrats are “totally blind to death” these days.
